OBITUARY- AGNES (HAMPTON) SUTHERLAND
Agnes HAMPTON, daughter of Henry and Matle (LETHCP) HAMPTON, was born January 18, 1915 in Pansy, Missouri. Agnes married
her childhood sweetheart Clarence SUTHERLAND on January 31, 1939 in Ava, Missouri. They moved to Tingley, IA in the summer
of 1939. Agnes lived in her Tingley home until the spring of 2006 at which time she moved into the Mt. Ayr Health Care.
Agnes enjoyed watching basketball games on TV, time in the kitchen, sewing, visiting on the phone and hearing about her
family. She was convinced that she could fix almost anything. She was always willing to help wherever she was needed.
Whatever she did, it was done well. Agnes lived as a homemaker her entire life and also worked outside the home at the
Tingley Café, the Shamrock Café, and the Sunny Slope Nursing Home which became the Mt. Ayr Health Care.
She passed into rest on May 24, 2010. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence, her parents Henry and Matle
HAMPTON and brother Clifton HAMPTON.
Agnes is survived by her only daughter, Norma Jean JONES of West Des Moines, IA, her only granddaughter, Sheri Kay CORK
of Jefferson, SD, grand-son-in-law Don CORK, and great-grandchildren, Andrew, Sarah, and Benjamin CORK. She is also
survived by sisters-in-law Althea Hampton and Goldie Sutherland and many nieces and nephews.
She will be missed by her family and friends.
